International automation and control symposium for Ireland

This year the ISA’s international Food and Pharmaceutical symposium is being held in Ireland, and its first time to be held outside of North America. The symposium will bring together experts, suppliers, and end users in a two-day symposium of presentations and panel discussions.

The year 1916 is a special year in Irish history as it marks the centenary of the rebellion which led to self Government some six years later. Many events are planned through the country and the symposium is scheduled for the few days before the national holiday of St Patrick’s Day.

The symposium will focus on how Automation is used to address the impact of increased regulation, manufacturing costs, and security threats related to the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Speakers will present on the latest trends, and provide case-studies which demonstrate the effective integration and use of Automation to solve these challenges.

The 2016 PFID Symposium it will provide the very latest news, trends and projections about products and processes—direct from leading industry and solution experts. Government officials have been invited to deliver updates and provide clarity on regulatory requirements. A keenly focused conference agenda will explore the critical challenges and how best to solve them through innovations in process automation, and new strategies, products and techniques in control, optimization, measurement, and serialization.

Prospective presenters are invited to submit original contributions on all aspects of Automation including but not limited to the following topics. Emphasis should be on practical contributions rather than theoretical presentations.

  • Cybersecurity
  • Sustainable Processing
  • Data Integrity
  • Alarm Management
  • Industrial Internet of Things
  • Usage of Cloud for Automation
  • Instrumentation: Calibration, Wireless
  • Batch Management & MES
  • ISA Standards
  • Process Optimization
  • Serialization / Track and Trace
  • OEE, PAT, GAMP
  • Energy/ Waste Management
  • Process Control
  • Paperless Automation
  • Manufacturing Regulations

TECH TALK: Hal Software – Prototyping a batch process control system using ISA-S88 and ISA-S95

Posted in Events on August 12th, 2015 by admin – Comments Off on TECH TALK: Hal Software – Prototyping a batch process control system using ISA-S88 and ISA-S95

In this presentation Cormac Garvey – Hal Software, will discuss the concept of using prototyping for a batch control system. Prototyping is a relatively new concept in control systems, but is standard in many other industries. In this talk Cormac will cover off what exactly prototyping can be used for in process control, what are the benefits of prototyping and how one would go about using prototyping.
Cormac will then give a practical demonstration of how one would build a prototype of a simple batch process control system using the ISA-S88 design
pattern.

 

Location: Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork
Date: Wednesday, 16th  September 2015, 19:30pm

Tech Talk: Data Capture on the Factory Floor

Posted in Events on April 11th, 2015 by admin – Comments Off on Tech Talk: Data Capture on the Factory Floor

In this presentation Robert Jones – Vision ID will discuss a seamless work environment by connecting employees with accurate information, and empowering them to do their best. Whether on the production line, in the warehouse or at the dock-door, better data means fewer errors and lower costs. From the second raw materials are received, to the moment finished goods are shipped, data capture solutions improves quality & compliance, reducing efficiencies & errors.

By combining handheld computers, tablets, barcode scanners, RFID technologies, vision systems, label printers and Wireless LAN technologies – enables track and trace by lot or batch, all parts used in the manufacturing process to ensure traceability across the supply chain. Where testing, tracking, recording, documentation, production, or packaging takes place, data capture solutions provide the control and accuracy that industry demands.
